The back-to-school shopping season is just around the corner, and Microsoft (MSFT) is hoping its new Surface Laptop will be the computer you or your child brings to the classroom. Starting at $999, the Surface Laptop is Microsoft’s attempt to fight back against the growing popularity of Google’s (GOOG, GOOGL) low-cost Chromebooks and Apple’s (AAPL) own MacBook line.

Due to factors such as global warming and over-fishing of its predators, the humble jellyfish has experienced a population explosion in recent years. In fact, there are so many of the creatures in some places that jellyfish-killing aquatic robots have been designed to keep their numbers under control. It seems like a waste to just dump them, though. With that in mind, a scientist from the University of Southern Denmark has developed a method of turning them into a potato chip-like food...

Silicon Power Launches Mobile C50 USB Drive with USB Type-A, Micro-B and Type-C
This week Silicon Power has announced a rather unique series of USB flash drives. Dubbed the Mobile C50, the Swiss army knife-type USB flash drive is a 3-in-1 drive that features all three major types of USB connectors, and as a result can be used with virtually all USB host devices from PCs to smartphones. The drives come with up to 128 GB capacity along with additional software to make them further compatible with mobile devices.
The Silicon Power Mobile C50 flash drives feature 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB configurations and are equipped with USB Type-A, USB Micro-B, and USB Type-C connectors. Meanwhile the interesting construction of the drives is designed to protect the connectors from damage: the Micro-B connector is sheltered by the...EVGA Introduces the GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N Edition Video Card
Since the release of NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, specifically the fully enabled Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, many enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting card partners' flagship parts built off the big silicon. After a couple of months, we saw the ASUS ROG Poseidon 1080 Ti, AORUS Extreme Edition, and most recently, the MSI Lightning hit store shelves. Missing from that group was EVGA’s K|NGP|IN which was formally introduced earlier this week.
The K|NGP|N (KPE) version is, by all accounts, a video card engineered to be overclocked. The EVGA website boldly proclaims it is, “Designed to be the best Overclocking Geforce GTX 1080 Ti”. In fact, the KPE GPU is guaranteed by EVGA to reach 2025 MHz+ overclock (tested using Unigine Heaven 4.0 Ext...EagleTree and Partners Acquire Majority Stake in Corsair for $525 Million
EagleTree Capital, the Investment Management Corp. of Ontario (IMCO), and the Honeywell pension fund on Wednesday announced that they had reached an agreement to acquire a majority stake in Corsair. Andy Paul, founder and CEO of Corsair, will continue to serve as the head of the company. Corsair expects to use investments from EagleTree and its partners to fund development of new technologies and products.
Corsair was founded in 1994 and initially focused on high performance memory modules. Since its establishment more than 20 years ago, Corsair has expanded its product lineup considerably to computer cases, NAND flash-based products, coolers, keyboards, mice, PSUs and even actual gaming PCs. All these expansions require a lot of mone...The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200 CPU Review: Zen on a Budget
AMD has always promised that Zen is a core suitable form entry level x86 computers all the way up to high-performance server parts. Within that scale so far, AMD has launched EPYC for servers, Ryzen 7 for high-end desktop and Ryzen 5 for mainstream consumers. All that is left is Threadripper for super-high-end desktops, coming in August, Zen paired with graphics, coming in Q3/Q4, and Ryzen 3 for entry level desktops, being launched today. The two entry level parts are quad core Zen CPUs, targeting the $109 to $129 boundary and offering four full x86 cores for the same price Intel offers two cores with hyperthreading.Toshiba Announces TR200 Retail SATA SSDs With 3D NAND
Toshiba has announced their first retail SSDs to use 3D NAND. The new TR200 series will use Toshiba's 64-layer BiCS3 3D TLC NAND, the first generation of their 3D NAND flash technology to be suitable for mainstream mass-market use. The TR200 series is the successor to the OCZ Trion 100 and Trion 150 SSDs, the latter of which was renamed TR150 when Toshiba began assimilating the OCZ brand identity. The TR200 series will not bear the OCZ name, but Toshiba is not completely abandoning the OCZ brand.
Where the previous Trion/TR series SSDs served as Toshiba's entry-level SATA offering and split the market with their MLC-based Vector/VT 180 and VX500, the TR200 will be Toshiba's only retail SATA SSD for this generation. As with most other ...AMD Releases Bristol Ridge to Retail: AM4 Gets APUs
The focus for AMD’s AM4 platform is to span a wide range of performance and price points. We’ve had the launch of the Ryzen CPU family, featuring quad cores up to octa-cores with the new Zen microarchitecture, but AM4 was always designed to be a platform that merges CPUs and integrated graphics. We’re still waiting for the new Zen cores in products like Ryzen to find their way down into the desktop in the form of the Raven Ridge family, however those parts are going through the laptop stack first and will likely appear on the desktop either at the end of the year or in Q1 next year. Until then, users get to play with Bristol Ridge, originally released back in September 2016, but finally making its way to retail.First the OEMs, Now Co...HTC Announces Snapdragon 835-Based VIVE VR Headset for Chinese Market

The HTC VIVE Standalone VR headset is a yet another device of this kind to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC, which is one of the highest-performing mobile processors available today. The VR headset does not require a PC or a smartphone, is completely standalone and will get content from the Viveport store in China. Since Google's Daydream content is not available in China due to national regulations barring Go...USB 3.2 Update to Bring 20 Gbps Bandwidth: USB 3.1 Type-C Cables Compulsory
The USB 3.0 Promoters Group announced an update to the existing USB 3.1 standard in order to double the maximum possible bandwidth from 10 Gbps to 20 Gbps. This USB 3.2 specification is currently in the final draft review phase. USB 3.2 will remain backward compatible with existing USB devices.
The new specifications will retain the USB 3.1 physical layer data rates and encoding techniques. The doubling of bandwidth is achieved by going in for a two-channel operation (current USB 3.1 Gen 1/2 devices use only one 'super-speed' channel).The use of two channels is possible only if a certified USB 3.1 Type-C cable is used to connect the host and the device.
To understand this further, it is helpful to take a look at the layout of the p...

AMD launches Ryzen 3 series of desktop processors
After Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5, AMD has launched its entry level Ryzen 3 series of desktop processors. The series includes two models, the Ryzen 3 1200 and the 1300X. The $129 Ryzen 3 1300X has four cores and four threads with a base clock of 3.5GHz and boost clock of 3.7GHz. It can go up to 3.9GHz with XFR provided you ditch the stock Wraith Stealth cooler and get an aftermarket one like the new $59 Wreath Max with RGB lighting. The $109 Ryzen 3 1200 also has four cores and four threads with a base clock of 3.1GHz and boost clock of 3.4GHz. Both have 65W TDP. Both processors are...Google Pixel and Pixel XL now start at $420 ($399.99 refurbished) through new deals
As we get closer to the unveiling of their successors, Google's Pixel and Pixel XL are starting to be offered for lower prices more often. Today both Woot and Verizon have promos on the Pixels, though in the case of the former we're talking about refurbished devices, offered in black only - and for a very limited time. You can get a refurb Pixel for $399.99, or a Pixel XL for $449.99 from Woot, but you do have to act fast - the deal is only on for around six more hours. If you'd rather get a brand spanking new phone for your money, then Verizon has something for you.

Huawei's next flagship phablet will be called Mate 10, just as anticipated. This has been confirmed today in an interview by Richard Yu, the chief of Huawei's consumer division. He also said it would come with a "full-screen display", which we take to mean "near bezelless", joining the defining trend of 2017 in the smartphone world. Such an edge-to-edge screen was rumored for the Mate 10 at the beginning of this month, and now it's pretty much a given. We've also heard that the phablet would be powered by the upcoming Kirin 970 chipset, but Yu stayed mum on that one. He did however promise...Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus get more than 100,000 registrations in the first day
Yesterday Meizu finally announced the Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus, its latest flagship smartphones, following many weeks of leaks, rumors, and speculation. The devices both come with a second screen on the back, dual rear cameras, and top specs throughout. The first flash sale for the duo will happen in China on August 5, which is next week. Ahead of that, as usual in China, the company has started taking registrations - you can't participate in a flash sale without registering first. In slightly less than one day, the Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus managed to score over 100,000 registrations,...HMD now owns 500 Nokia design patents, including one for the Lumia Camera UI
An interesting revelation comes today regarding Nokia, both old and new. About 500 design patents have been transferred from Microsoft Mobile to HMD Global. The former is the company that made the Microsoft and Nokia branded Windows handsets following the acquisition by Microsoft of Nokia's smartphone division many years ago. The latter is the company currently holding the exclusive license to use the Nokia name for smartphones. HMD Global has already launched the Nokia 3, 5, and 6, and will unveil the flagship Nokia 8 next month. This top of the line offering may have something rather...Unlocked Moto Z2 Play is up for pre-order in the US, Verizon's model just $120 this weekend
The Moto Z2 Play has been available at Verizon since late June, so it's finally time for the unlocked model to make an appearance. This can now be pre-ordered directly from Motorola's online store. It is priced at $499.99 and will work on all major US carriers - AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, even Verizon. You can choose between black and gold, color-wise. Note that the unlocked model comes with 64GB of built-in storage, twice the amount found in the Verizon-specific iteration of the smartphone. Speaking of which, coincidentally or not the carrier nicknamed Big Red has decided to run an insane...iPod nano and shuffle were discontinued today, iPod touch got double the storage
Today it's time to shed a tear for the iPod nano and iPod shuffle, because both of them got discontinued by Apple. This comes less than three years after the same thing happened to the iPod classic. The iPod nano and shuffle have been unceremoniously pulled from the Apple website, and the company has since confirmed to TechCrunch that it is in fact discontinuing the music players. So if you want an iPod, from this point on your only option will be the iPod touch - and who knows how long it will be before that one bites the dust too. For now, Apple seems to be doubling down on the touch,...Samsung Pay might work on non-Samsung smartphones next year
Samsung Pay started out being exclusive to the Korean company's high-end smartphones but has since made it into the mid-range, in its more restricted Mini iteration. We've already heard that Samsung plans on bringing Pay Mini to Android devices made by its competitors, as well as iOS, and today a new report says the company wants its payments service to be ubiquitous. Apparently there have been internal talks regarding the possibility to make Samsung Pay available to the high-end smartphones made by other companies. It also plans on making the full fledged service available on some of its...

It's shockingly easy for hackers to remotely scan and clone your work security badge
You're riding the subway to work, or taking a smoke break outside the office, or simply strolling down the street. Someone with a backpack is standing nearby, but you think nothing of it.
Thirty seconds later that very same someone has a cloned hard copy of your work ID badge, ready to stroll right into your office.

The excitement over Sumo Digital's upcoming Crackdown 3 has been lukewarm at best. But the one human being on the planet who could fix that is the man, thy myth, the legend: Terry Crews.
At a recent Comic-Con panel for the game (above), the designers released a video introducing his playable character. Named after Crews' own son (who got him back into gaming in the first place), Commander Isaiah Jackson of the Agents of Justice is the man your girl told you not to worry about.

The office of the President of the United States is the best reality show out there.
It's been kind of a shit show since Trump took office, to say the least. And the last few weeks have been extra juicy. Recently, Trump brought on Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci as his communications director, causing press secretary Sean Spicer to resign.

On Thursday, The New Yorker published a bombshell interview with The Mooch and reporter Ryan Lizza. Scaramucci did not request the conversation be kept off record, and it was littered with some very nasty trash talk.
